System configuration

  • Running Sierra (10.12.5)
  • MacBook Pro 13" (Early 2015)

Issue

Messages and many other options are missing from the system Share menu, both in Safari and in the Share Menu extensions pane.

These among others are missing:

  • Messages (most annoying)
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Linkedin
  • Vimeo
  • Flickr

Here's what I've tried so far with no success:

  • Update to latest Sierra 10.12.5
  • Run this command line to force-reload launch services
  • Disable and re-enable iCloud contacts
  • Disable and reenable System Integrity Protection

Related observations

  • Under Preferences -> Internet Accounts, I cannot check the box next to 'Share Menu' for Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo etc, even though accounts are correctly configured. enter image description here

Really appreciate any help!

Update 7/11:

I just got an old 2011 MackBook Pro repaired, and upgraded it from El Capitan to Sierra. The Share menu works as expected, with Messages as an option. Still not working on the machine with the problem.

  • I should mention that all the social accounts (facebook, twitter, etc) are correctly configured in the Internet Accounts preference pane. – Andy Laken Jul 7 '17 at 15:32

  • Thanks, looking back at my OP I see that I tried this with no success. I just tried it again and it actually reduced the number of services appearing in the sharing menu. Messages, Twitter, Facebook etc still will not appear. – Andy Laken Feb 4 '18 at 22:20
  • Update: reinstalling MacOS High Sierra from the App Store did not resolve this. – Andy Laken Feb 23 '18 at 22:02

After running the lsregister command from the link I had to log out and log back in again for the share menu to change.
